The arts challenge, inspire and change individuals and communities because audiences are encouraged to answer questions about life, the world and the legacies we are creating.  We exist to share the value of art to Northeast Kansas and beyond. By doing so, we improve more than the communities livability. We improve its health, vitality and economic strength.
